Crosby suffered foot bruise in Friday's loss

TAMPA, Fla. -- Pittsburgh Penguins rookie center Sidney Crosby might miss Sunday's game at Tampa Bay with a bruised left foot.

Crosby was hit in the foot by a shot during the third period of
the Penguins' 6-3 loss Friday night at Florida. He did not take
part in practice Saturday and is listed as questionable by the team.

Crosby said Saturday the foot was better, but still a little stiff.

"We'll see ... I think it depends on the swelling," Crosby
said of whether he will play against the defending Stanley Cup
champion Lightning. "If it's swollen like this, we'll probably
just wait. If it's still swollen, and because it's swollen, the
left foot probably doesn't fit in a skate."

X-rays found no fractures. The primary treatment for the injury
has been icing the foot.

Crosby has 12 goals and 28 points in 23 games this season. He
has scored a goal in each of his last five games.
